Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi is set to return to the Arsenal first team as they prepare for the FA Cup semifinal clash against Manchester City.

The 20-year-old hasn’t featured for the North Londoners in two previous matches after he was devoted to the developmental squad.

Iwobi was pictured in the Gunners Thursday training wearing a long sleeves and looked to be feeling the cold.

The Nigeria international, wearing a jumper and tracksuit bottoms during the session, pulled his shirt up over his face to keep out the chill.

'What I expect from the semi-final is to go to the final,' Wenger said.

'We are ambitious, we have done it before, we know we can do it, but in the previous semis we were favourites so the problem was different.

'This time it is teams who are close to each other, it is much more level. We have absolutely to be at our best to qualify.'

Arsenal are currently placed sixth on the premier league log with 57 points but has two games in hand.
